Kuwait joins UN Security Council on Monday
KUWAIT CITY - Kuwait is set to commence its non-permanent membership at the UN Security Council (UNSC) on January 1 amidst many regional and global challenges.

Kuwait's Deputy Premier and Minister of Foreign Affairs Shaikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, in earlier statements, said that Kuwait will continue being neutral in resolving different issues, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

The Gulf state will also chair the council in February.

Kuwait won its place at the council after a vote. It now replaces Egypt as the only Arab member at the council.

Kuwait will be joined by the Ivory Coast, Equatorial Guinea, Peru and Poland, succeeding Japan, Egypt, Senegal, Ukraine and Uruguay after their two-year temporary membership expired.

The Security Council is made up of 10 non-permanent members elected to two-year terms and five permanent powers: Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States.

The elected countries - all of which were put forward by their regional grouping - will begin their term on January 1.

Kuwait first joined the UN in 1963 and was granted membership at the Security Council in 1978 and 1979.
